On Wednesday the 17th I went to the opening of The Wapping Project Bankside – Mayfair’s new location.
This reopening was accompanied by an unique photo exhibition of the Dutch artist Juul Kraijer. Her photographs reminded me of classical oil paintings that can mesmerize the spectators stare, holding it hostage by a stillness in the moment portrayed. The artist told me she started with the idea to frame her models face like a medallion. Because she worked with animals, however, the original idea started to transform into a dynamic canvas on which the content was constantly changing.
Go and see both this exhibition and gallery!
From 18th September – 30th October 2014
